world that it is more dangerous to be america's friend than it is to be our enemy. and i fear very much that in the age of obama that's proving to be true. now, the president's approach to nuclear disarmament which he also unveiled this week confirms the naivity of his views about america's enemies. until this week, any enemy of our country that might be contemplating a chemical, biological or large scale conventional attack against us knew they might face the worst in return, a nuclear response. we have now surrendered that powerful deterent. the new strategy prevents america from building any more nuclear weapons or using our nuclear deterrents to defend our allies against a massive conventional attack. apparently the president believes that if america stops its weapons production program the iranians and the north koreans will follow suit. [laughter] and while the president works to limit america's freedom of action, the iranian mullas are making steady progress toward acquiring a nuclear weapon. the president likes to say he's doing everything possible to prevent that from happening

, versus focusing what is wrong with america. as long as that is the attitude that you cannot do anything to uplift this country without feeling like you are handing out, giving handouts to someone, and you are against obama no matter what, because you feel for someone -- is going to benefit from it. host: thanks for the call. i am going back to another opinion piece. dan ball says the tea partiers movement is a reaction against obama and the democrats' agenda. sarah palin may be trying to become the movement's most prominent voice, but the real motivating force is the president and his policies. we are asking whether you think the tea partiers will have an impact on the upcoming elections. we read about charlie crist and the impact on the florida senate race. a democrat from brooklyn, new york. good morning. caller: good morning. it has become a habit to wake up and hear the conversation focused on the tea partiers movement. either you have nothing else to talk about -- i don't know if fox cable networks as influence in your studio. host: let me stop you. this program is a reflection of
and the people of the united states of america not president obama. the issues that i would like to work on are the issues that are before us now that i mentioned earlier. i would like to pass the fair tax. i think it will work. i would like health-care reform that would work. without forcing them to buy health care under the threat of a fine or going to jail. another thing i think that is important that is not being addressed is the board is security between the united states and mexico and our border security all around the country. it is a little disconcerting to mention. there were 17,000 murders in northern mexico and the last three years. that is scary. 650 kidnappings in arizona. something has to be some. >> i think our most immediate needs are to work on creating jobs in the united states and in arkansas. i would wear to eliminate the tax provision that action against american companies an incentive to move jobs overseas. replace those with tax credits so that we can create jobs here at home and said the more bailout for wall street. but put those funds into loans for arkansas sm
that any america first. to my independent brother from florida, right on, man. we need to get rid of these two parties. they need to be put out of office. we need to bring into a third party, and not fall for this tea party garbage, either. these two big parties do it every time they are not in office. we tried to be the independent, liberals, conservatives buddies. they're not our friends. they are our enemies that keep oppressing us. host: that will be the last voice this morning. in the stern, who for many years has been the president of the -- he has announced he will leave that position. on a personal side, he is turning 60. the personal aspect is much involved in his decision to leave. that is it for our thursday morning. we go to the house of representatives for today's live coverage. gues. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by the guest chaplain, reverend clyde miles, lighthouse reform church, howard, pennsylvania. the chaplain: o lord, who call this nation into being, to the lives and sacrifice of those whose hearts are state upon you. they conduct the wo

diversify america's energy supply, we maximize the production of renewable energy, that we produce more here at home and, yes, that includes oil and natural gas. and, madam president, the use of coal is also very important and the use of coal using new technology to decarbonize the use of coal is important. we can do all of these things. our legislation includes provisions that will accomplish that. we neendz our legislation to come to the -- we need our legislation to come to the floor of the senate from the energy committee. i would say awful those who -- i support a carbon cap and i will support pricing carbon. that does not include support for cap and trade. if we haven't learned anything from the last decade or so about what wall street would do with ads 1 trillion carbon securities market, then we're pretty ill-prepared to legislate on these issues. so, madam president, there are not a lot of weeks left in this legislative session, and my fervent hope is, i would say to those who have been working on climate change and blocking our ability to bring an energy bill to the floor of the s
. >> in this kind of economy, competing with that and india, raising taxes is suicidal. it makes america less competitive, less productive, less capable of building new factories. it is suicidal. i would start from the opposite end. i would say that the -- first of all it is very clear that the president made a decision part of why i moved to a much more decisive critique in describing a secular socialist machine and the most radical administration in history. they a chance after scott brown won in massachusetts to back up and say, you know the polls are against the health bill, the town hall meetings are against the health bill, the tea parties are against the health bill now we've lost kennedy's seat over the health bill, maybe we ought to go slower. instead they did the opposite. took them about a week they said we are going to ram this through no hart what the american people think. no question from every source i know of from gallup, rasmussen, dozen others that the health bill is unpopular by 20, 25 point margin. they just don't care. next they are going to come back and try to pass cap
have voiced in some variation over the last few weeks. it appears to be a shift in america's view of the israeli/palestinian conflict, casting it as a national security issue directly for the united states. and the new approach comes amid talk of a new obama peace plan for the middle east. joining me to talk about all of this are rashid khalidi, professor of arab studies at columbia university, and bret stephens, foreign affairs columnist for the "wall street journal" and a frequent guest here. so what petraeus seems to be saying, i'm out there talking to these arab leaders, it hurts our relationship with them and makes it more difficult for them to ally with us, they all complain about this. so he's sort of reflecting that ground reality, no? >> i think there's some element of truth to that and it's certainly convenient for our political leaders to make the case that discontent in their country has to do with what settlements israel might be building in parts of jerusalem as opposed to saying their own policies, the oppression of the egyptians, of course they're going to blame is

america should wake up and care about what's going on today. >> well, i think we should care about what's going on today because anything that reduces the level of international tension or the threat of rogue nuclear weapons in the hands of whomever is a good day for people who enjoy living the lives we lead and the way we lead them. >> yeah. of course, the big concern when you talk about nuclear weapons today, as opposed to -- you know, when you were a teenager in 1947, from -- obviously, we had inspector of nuclear wars from 1940s through christmas day 1991 when soviet union collapsed but you just said it, big concern is nuclear weapons getting in the hands of rogue nations. >> that's an interesting point you just raised. because there are so many people in this country, specifically, i'd say over the age of 50 or 55 years of age, who have had their entire lives framed by the cold war and the threat of nuclear weapons from growing up in grammar school, getting positioned under the desk when they had the civil defense exercises to today when, you know, we have so much opportunity and s
